Marjorie Perry, CEO of MZM Construction, will speak at Montclair State 5:30-6:30 p.m. March 5 at University Hall, room 1010. Here’s five reasons why you need to be there:
5. She’s one of the top women in New Jersey’s construction industry, a traditionally male-dominated industry.
4. She’s on the board of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, which means this lady has influence.
3. Her company has had more than 20 years of profitable performance under Perry’s leadership, which means she can share secrets of success.
2. She’s an incredible role model for overcoming obstacles and never giving up on your goals.
1. She’s so cool that she was recently willing to be in a selfie with me, but also no-nonsense enough to give up on my failed selfie attempts (see attempt #3 below) and ask someone else to take the picture.
(OK, so this won’t be retweeted as much as Ellen Degeneres’ Oscars selfie, and I obviously don’t have Bradley Cooper’s selfie-shooting abilities. Although, c’mon, if I’m pining for something from Bradley Cooper, it’s definitely not his ability to shoot selfies.)
Don’t miss Marjorie Perry’s talk at 5:30 p.m. Wed. March 5 in University Hall room 1010. Maybe she’ll even shoot a selfie with you.
